Advice To The Players Welcomes You To Our 23rd Season "The Masks We Choose To Wear" Through the past few years we've all become well acquainted with masks, however we as humans have been wearing masks, both physical and metaphorical throughout the ages. Some characters hide behind literal disguises, while some use their station in life and the circumstances they are born into to obscure their true self. This season, ATTP wanted to explore plays in which the characters choose to hide behind a mask, for reasons we will discover as the season unfolds.
This year ATTP has made some changes to the season/calendar that our audience has grown accustomed to. With the current Public Health situation, we have decided to move our education touring production (usually in March) to the Fall.
In July, come see our Second Stage production of Merchant of Venice Beach, a play with songs by John Minigan. In classic Second Stage Style, this Shakespeare adjacent piece focuses on a group of counter-culture youth and trying to find truth while saving Venice Beach’s historic gay bar. Mark your calendars for July 15-24.
Our Main Stage production this year will be All's Well That Ends Well. This story follows a woman, Helena, hopelessly in unrequited love with a nobleman. Come see Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well August 5-14th.
Summer of 2022 will also be host to our Studio Series, more information on our Studio Series Page! Our teens will have plenty to look forward to in the summer, including the return of our teen run program Queen Mab and Shakesperience! Camps. Henry V takes center stage this fall, so make sure to stay tuned for sword fights and a battle of wills. To close out the year, ATTP's annual holiday production of Twelfth Night.
